Colette Paperie was established by Keli (Catalano) Spanier in 2008. She was working in a cubicle at a big corporation, devising an escape plan. Little did she know that in a few years, her cards would be world-famous and have a presence in over 400 stores. Greeting cards seemed an obvious choice to her because she describes herself as "one of those freakish people who keep 50 cards on-hand for when the situation arose to send it." What makes Colette Paperie cards stand out is their unique voice that helps others express themselves at life's milestones and tough times.

In her spare time, Keli teaches calligraphy & hand lettering to anyone who is willing to learn, and the rest of the time is devoted to her nerdy husband and two stepdaughters.

Keli has been featured in numerous publications, including Etsy's "Quit Your Day Job" blog, Huffington Post, Design Milk, Soapbox Cincinnati, Cincy Chic, MSP Mag in Minneapolis, The National Stationery Show, The Paper Chronicles, and Stationery Trends Magazine. She's also hosted workshops at Altitude Summit.
